Yum! Yuck!
By Beth Beutler

1     "A jelly bean that tastes like dirt? Yuck!" Marie said as her friend Brendan held out a box of multi-colored jelly beans.
2     Brendan laughed. Marie didn't like gross things. He loved to tease her.
3     "Why not? It's pretty funny how these jelly beans really taste like other things."
4     "Not interested," Marie said, putting her nose up in the air.
5     "Suit yourself," Brendan said. "I think I'll try this one that is supposed to taste like buttered popcorn."
6     "Buttered popcorn?" Marie said, suddenly interested.
7     "Yep. " Brendan said, while still savoring the taste. "It's yummy."
8     Marie grabbed the box from Brendan. "Are the yellow ones the ones that taste like buttered popcorn?"
